I've no idea why the library is not installing on your system.  Try this
The above file is a more recent installer - however the actual build has
some other problems which means that it should not be used for
production data, however it will at least test if the library is
installed...  I know our comercial builds install correctly, but I
haven't tried installing the open source builds on our solaris box for
over a year.

	Hi Arthur
	I have completed my installation of the 32bit version, and I am
afraid the problem still exists. The .so file is still nowhere to be
	Any other ideas?

		Hi Arthur
		Thank you very much for your reply. I have checked:
		"Check that the following file exists:
		And can confirm that this file does not exist. In fact
the whole folder doesn't exist! I have 4 .so library files in the
folder: /usr/local/lib/sparcv9/cvsnt/triggers/. They are called
audit.so, checkout.so, email.so and info.so.
		I used the pkgadd -d cvsnt- to
install CVSNT but it didn't install it in the path that you mention in
your mail. Instead it was installed in: /usr/local/lib/sparcv9/cvsnt/ by
default. I have also confirmed that the file default_trigger.so does not
exist in this folder. 
		Yes I have installed the 64bit version, I will start a
download of the 32bit version in the mean time.
		Thank you.

			That is a serious error.  I think you mis-read
Bo's comments in the
			newsgroup.  The message was regarding CVSNT
2.5.04 I think, and in that
			version the default trigger still exists, it is
not called
			default_trigger.dll though, it is called "info"
- but all that is 
			irrelevant - since you are using CVSNT 2.5.03.
			Check that the following file exists:
			Also set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include
/usr/local/lib/cvsnt (though I
			think this step is not really necessary).
			Note: If you installed the package at a
different root then uninstall
			and re-install in the default location.  You
cannot override the default
			install location with CVSNT. 
			Note: if you installed the 64 bit Solaris build
- uninstall it and
			re-install the 32 bit build first (the 64 bit
build is rather tricky,
			and unless you are going to have large RCS files
(> 300Mb) then is
